Technical Support Representative

Are you passionate about customer support? Do you believe that the customer really does come first?  Would you like to grow your career in Technical Support in a Lean organization, as well as expand your knowledge of mobile air compressors?  If you can answer “Yes” to those questions you may be the person we need to join our high-performance team of professionals as a Technical Support Representative.

The Opportunity:

You’ll be providing in depth technical support for VMAC’s line of air compressors at VMAC’s lean manufacturing facility in Nanaimo, BC.   Your key to excelling in this position will be bringing your practical automotive / mechanical expertise, your passion for helping our customers, your respect for your coworkers and your educational background to real-world challenges in meeting our customers’ needs.  You’ll be expected to demonstrate a strong work ethic, an ability to resolve problems based upon facts, and an overwhelming desire to improve the lives of our customers and your coworkers. Perfection isn’t always possible but having a strong desire to achieve it is an absolute necessity!

There will be a steep learning curve to bring the successful candidate up to our high technical and customer facing standards, but as your knowledge of our product increases you will assist others in the Technical Support Team by taking client technical service support calls, traveling to, and training our dealers and clients, completing “hands-on” in house repairs and services of air compressor systems and generally being a brand ambassador for VMAC.
